A boutique-style, adults-only paradise

Surrounded by enchanting scenery and nestled right on the edge of a pristine white sandy beach, Galley Bay is an adult-only paradise which benefits guests with a boutique-style blend of luxury, intimacy and relaxation. Named as one of the "Top 10 Best Resorts for Romance in the Caribbean" by the readers of TripAdvisor, it really lives up to its name with a selection of well-appointed beachfront rooms and suites with king-sized beds and attractive Caribbean-style interiors. The Gauguin Suiteis sure to entice you with its secluded patio and private plunge pool. Exclusive dining opportunities come in local and international flavours, ranging from private cabana dinners to lunch time favourites on the sand. Snorkelling is amazing here, or windsurfing, or tennis and cycling, or you can just relax and try one of the indulgent treatments in the resort's very own spa sanctuary.

Was just there and already want to return!

Loved Galley Bay resort! A beautiful beach with crystal clear waters, great food and wonderful staff. Mostly all of the guests were repeat customers, which says a lot. I can definitely see why as my hubby and I would love to go back as well! It's a great place if you want to chill and enjoy the beach (not if you want to party until the wee hours or want tons of activities). We loved it. Special shout out to Kelly and Shiloh, who work at the watersports area, and were both kind enough to take us out on separate sailing trips where we got to snorkel and see another beach (all included in the price of the stay)! They, along with the other staff, were so friendly and professional. A lovely resort - hope to return!

Lush Oasis. Perfect For A Relaxing Getaway

Phoenix, Arizona

My husband and I recently stayed at Galley Bay Resort for our honeymoon, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The property is huge. There’s a large bay you can fish in, run/bike paths to explore, private (technically every beach in Antigua is public) white-sand beaches, and even a working garden/farm. Because the landscape is so lush, you sometimes feel that there are only five other couples on the property when in factt the place is completely full. The food was delicious and adventurous. We were able to try so many new food variations that we have never had (coming from native Alaskan and Arizonan couple). Ismay’s was absolutely delicious; however, my husband and I are fast eaters; so, we got a bit antsy doing a two-three house dinner course. The majority of the staff was amazing. They were so personable and kind; however, there were a few that were not too thrilled to be there. Unfortunately, the unfriendly ones mainly held the Tiki Bar down; so, the alcoholic drinks could be weak. Like any restaurant, you definitely want to make sure you get friendly with the nice ones, because they definitely hooked you up with well made drinks. We stayed at the deluxe beachfront room on the bottom floor and liked the convenience of walking right out to the ocean. The ceiling walls are pretty thin; so, if you were to stay on the first floor, you will hear people walking on top. The cleaning staff were in your room multiple times a day! We would take a nap late morning not expecting the room to be cleaned until later at night, but you would come back and bam! It’s cleaned. The only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was the fact that they would pick up the towels from the floor and hang them. We purposely had towels on the floor to be changed out, but they weren’t doing that. That was a bit of a bummer. One of our sinks were clogged up and the water pressure is BAD (for showering), buuuuut that didn’t bug me us much as the towels. Overall, I highly recommend coming here if you want a relaxing, non-partying getaway. You will not get nightlife here if that is what you are looking for. Regardless of some of the staff being standoffish and dirty towels being hanged up repeatedly, we would still come here again in a heart beat. Also, I went the second weekend of May and we had zero mosquito problems.
